    What have you done to your car lately?

    Washed a weeks worth of dust, bird crap, leaves and Koala crap off my SRI-T after staying in the Otways. Still have to vac half a beach out of it tomorrow!

    Also noted I averaged 7.5l/100km from my last tank of fuel even with a couple of 'nice' drives down the great ocean road. Didn't have to fuel up all week.

    gonna have to make some custom caliper carriers and lines, so will take a while but will do.

    Checked them with the CDXi 17's that i use as track rims, only about 10mm clearance to the caliper, so think these will be the biggest brakes i can run, well biggest rotor anyway...

    Aren't the VXR rotors 322mm? Should be more than 10mm....

    Stock Vectra 315mm rotors + calipers had tonnes of room. Maybe I'm just imagining things again.

    vec c has different rotor to rim offset, so the caliper is deeper in the wheel, hence more room.
